Probable Locations for Tourist Jetties in Assam

The Ministry of Ports, Shipping, and Waterways has selected seven preliminary areas for the building of tourist jetties in order to promote and increase river tourism and water sports along the Brahmaputra, according to Union Minister of Ports, Shipping, and Waterways Sarbananda Sonowal.

Oriumghat, Bhupen Hazarika Setu, Tezpur’s Koliabhomora Bridge, Bogibeel Bridge, DikhowMukh, Kalongmukh, and Uzanbazar will all be utilised for the construction of tourist jetties.

The construction of tourist jetties will assist river cruise tourism, as well as produce local employment and economic growth. These jetties would be in addition to the four tourist jetties that have previously been sanctioned at Jogighopa, Pandu, Neamati, and BishwanathGhat.
